## NAME

STGSYL - solves the generalized Sylvester equation

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE STGSYL(
TRANS, IJOB, M, N, A, LDA, B, LDB, C, LDC, D, LDD, E, LDE, F, LDF, SCALE, DIF, WORK, LWORK, IWORK, INFO )

CHARACTER TRANS

INTEGER IJOB, INFO, LDA, LDB, LDC, LDD, LDE, LDF, LWORK, M, N

REAL DIF, SCALE

INTEGER IWORK( * )

REAL A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ), C( LDC, * ), D( LDD, * ), E( LDE, * ), F( LDF, * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

STGSYL solves the generalized Sylvester equation:
R - L scale                 (1)
R - L scale F
where R and L are unknown m-by-n matrices, (A, D), (B, E) and (C, F) are given matrix pairs of size m-by-m, n-by-n and m-by-n, respectively, with real entries. (A, D) and (B, E) must be in generalized (real) Schur canonical form, i.e. A, B are upper quasi triangular and D, E are upper triangular.
The solution (R, L) overwrites (C, F). 0 <= SCALE <= 1 is an output scaling factor chosen to avoid overflow.
In matrix notation (1) is equivalent to solve Zx = scale b, where Z is defined as

kron(In, A)  -kron(Baq, Im)         (2)
kron(In, D)  -kron(Eaq, Im) ].
Here Ik is the identity matrix of size k and Xaq is the transpose of X. kron(X, Y) is the Kronecker product between the matrices X and Y. If TRANS = aqTaq, STGSYL solves the transposed system Zaq*y = scale*b, which is equivalent to solve for R and L in

Aaq  Daq   scale            (3)
Baq  Eaq  scale (-F)
This case (TRANS = aqTaq) is used to compute an one-norm-based estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)], the separation between the matrix pairs (A,D) and (B,E), using SLACON.
If IJOB >= 1, STGSYL computes a Frobenius norm-based estimate of Dif[(A,D),(B,E)]. That is, the reciprocal of a lower bound on the reciprocal of the smallest singular value of Z. See [1-2] for more information.
This is a level 3 BLAS algorithm.

## ARGUMENTS

TRANS (input) CHARACTER*1
= aqNaq, solve the generalized Sylvester equation (1). = aqTaq, solve the aqtransposedaq system (3).
IJOB (input) INTEGER
Specifies what kind of functionality to be performed. =0: solve (1) only.
=1: The functionality of 0 and 3.
=2: The functionality of 0 and 4.
=3: Only an estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] is computed. (look ahead strategy IJOB = 1 is used). =4: Only an estimate of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] is computed. ( SGECON on sub-systems is used ). Not referenced if TRANS = aqTaq.
M (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrices A and D, and the row dimension of the matrices C, F, R and L.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrices B and E, and the column dimension of the matrices C, F, R and L.
A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA, M)
The upper quasi triangular matrix A.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1, M).
B (input) REAL array, dimension (LDB, N)
The upper quasi triangular matrix B.
LDB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1, N).
C (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDC, N)
On entry, C contains the right-hand-side of the first matrix equation in (1) or (3). On exit, if IJOB = 0, 1 or 2, C has been overwritten by the solution R. If IJOB = 3 or 4 and TRANS = aqNaq, C holds R, the solution achieved during the computation of the Dif-estimate.
LDC (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array C. LDC >= max(1, M).
D (input) REAL array, dimension (LDD, M)
The upper triangular matrix D.
LDD (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array D. LDD >= max(1, M).
E (input) REAL array, dimension (LDE, N)
The upper triangular matrix E.
LDE (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array E. LDE >= max(1, N).
F (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDF, N)
On entry, F contains the right-hand-side of the second matrix equation in (1) or (3). On exit, if IJOB = 0, 1 or 2, F has been overwritten by the solution L. If IJOB = 3 or 4 and TRANS = aqNaq, F holds L, the solution achieved during the computation of the Dif-estimate.
LDF (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array F. LDF >= max(1, M).
DIF (output) REAL
On exit DIF is the reciprocal of a lower bound of the reciprocal of the Dif-function, i.e. DIF is an upper bound of Dif[(A,D), (B,E)] = sigma_min(Z), where Z as in (2). IF IJOB = 0 or TRANS = aqTaq, DIF is not touched.
SCALE (output) REAL
On exit SCALE is the scaling factor in (1) or (3). If 0 < SCALE < 1, C and F hold the solutions R and L, resp., to a slightly perturbed system but the input matrices A, B, D and E have not been changed. If SCALE = 0, C and F hold the solutions R and L, respectively, to the homogeneous system with C = F = 0. Normally, SCALE = 1.
WORK (workspace/output) REAL array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
LWORK (input) INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK. LWORK > = 1. If IJOB = 1 or 2 and TRANS = aqNaq, LWORK >= max(1,2*M*N). If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.
IWORK (workspace) INTEGER array, dimension (M+N+6)
INFO (output) INTEGER
=0: successful exit
<0: If INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value.
>0: (A, D) and (B, E) have common or close eigenvalues.
